Octopus Ballet

This white octopus was filmed with a high-definition underwater video camera at 6600 feet depth 200 miles off the coast of Oregon in September 2005 as part of the VISIONS ’05 expedition led by Professors John Delaney and Deborah Kelley of the University of Washington.

Little is known about the deep-sea octopuses that live in proximity to the hydrothermal vent fields associated with the underwater volcanoes of the
Juan de Fuca Ridge in the Northeast Pacific Ocean.
